The year 2018 was saddled with bearish market, while this has in some ways discouraged a rather considerable amount of investors and blockchain stakeholders, it is imperative to bring to your notice that there is still plenty of greens in the cryptocurrency industry. Also, it is also important that I establish that investors are still trooping into the industry; these are investors that I refer to as people that are not in the industry for a quick profit. So if you are reading this and you are in for a quick profit, this might be beneficial to you. While it is good to invest wisely into a crypto coin that will yield good dividends, it is important that you know that it is not always a roller coaster ride that always go up.
One of the major causes of the bearish market of 018 was the saturation of the cryptocurrency space with different altcoins, giving way for incredibility, frauds and permeability. However, 2019 promises a market capitalization dedicated to eliminating these altcoin projects that shouldn’t have in anyway enter into the cryptocurrency business. This as a result may nullify many initial investments, but it will on a long run increase the worth of cryptocurrency that deserves to be invested in. So, I guess I can comfortably say that 2019 will see the increase of specific, special coins to the 200% profit mark. While the coins that I have given here are strictly based on prediction, I will like to state the fact that these predictions were made with available data.

Ripple (XRP)

On the index of performance, Ripple was sitting at the top in 2017. It growing at an amazing 35,000% profit mark in the year. Over the year 2018, ripple has been involved with hundreds of partnerships with major players in the bank industry. Most experts believe that 2019 for cryptocurrency, is the year of the investment of institutional money. With partnerships with giants like Israel’s GMT, MoneyGram, American Express, EarthPort and Akbank all line,  all indications shows that Ripple is on the forefront in terms of security in the eyes of investors. It is not surprising therefore that Ripple is going to be a good hit in 2019, with over 200% profit mark.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Bitcoin is considered to be the king of cryptocurrency, with over 10 years in the market. Although the past one year have not been that good for the creation of Sahtoshi Nakamato, with it being on the bear market range. Bitcoin remains a strong holder in the market capital, holding more than 50% share. And with all indications showing that a possible expansion is imminent in 2019, it means that Bitcoin will also increase. Bitcoin also remains the most popular cryptocurrency, so it is the first choice of new investors. After it hit a $20,000 highest mark in December 2017, with an averaging price of $3,500 in December 2018, you will agree with me that everything is possible. And among all possibilities, forecasting have favored up to 300% increase.

Binance (BNB)

Binance is currently the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the world. 2019, from all indications promises even bigger improvements. Binance has continued to attract new investors, especially because it has a token with the most traded coins available in the market. They have a wonderful referral scheme, with easy exchanges. Coupled with the fact that holders of Binance get discounts on trading fees. With all these advantages at its disposal, we are sure looking at a 2019 with a profit margin over 200%.

OmiseGo (OMG)

OmiseGo is a payment terminal, said to be the cryptocurrency version of PayPal. They announced partnerships with the Thai Government this year, making it a probable king in the crypto market space with a government backed advantages. With major operations in Japan, Singapore and Indonesia, OmiseGo is looking forward to taking over the payment platform in 2019, attracting more investors and traders. This it does by helping giving people without bank account the opportunity to get banking services. With a good history so far, you can’t but deny that OmiseGo is coming with a big bang in 2019.


For beginners, Bitcoin mining is an energy-intensive process of introducing new Bitcoins into the ecosystem.
Simple? No. Don’t jump into conclusion
I want you to view it as a mode of creating new currencies by your government. But unlike any government in the world, Bitcoin supply is fixed and regulated by laws; Laws like that if mathematics that can’t be broken overnight.
Wait, it is also not as easy as banks printing new currency notes. Instead, a lot of energy and work, and energy intensive, is put into this and is carried out before producing a single Bitcoin, which is called proof of work.
Considering the truth that Bitcoin cryptocurrency is based on blockchain technology, we strongly advice you to understand the concept of blockchain. Because not having an understanding in Bitcoin and blockchain, then this article might not really be of great help here.

Step 1 – Get The Best Bitcoin Mining Hardware Purchasing Bitcoins

In some cases, you may need to buy some mining hardware with bitcoins in them. Amazon is one of the best parts where machines could be bought to mine Bitcoin.
How to start Bitcoin mining
To start mining cryptocurrency coins, you will need to get bitcoin mining hardware. In the founding days of bitcoin, it was possible to mine with your desktop or high speed video processor card. Today that’s a past stuff you can’t write about.
Bitcoin mining with anything lesser than the best mining hardware will consume more in electricity than you are likely to earn. It’s important to mine cryptocurrency/bitcoins with the best of the best bitcoin mining machines built specifically for that purpose.

Step 2 – Download Free Bitcoin Mining Software

After hitting on a good mining Bitcoin hardware, it’s time to download a special program used for Bitcoin mining.
Two most popular mining machines are CGminer and BFGminer which are command line programs, these are many programs that can’t be used for Bitcoin mining.

Step 3 – Join A Bitcoin Mining Pool

Just after Bitcoin have been mined then it is recommended to join a mining pool. These Bitcoin mining pools are groups of Bitcoin miners who are working side by side to solve a blockchain and share the gains.
Bitcoin mining pool without a mining machine, you might just start mining bitcoins for over a long time and never get to earn any bitcoins.

Step 4 – Set Up A Bitcoin Wallet

Coming right up after joining a Bitcoin mining pool, the next is to create a Bitcoin wallet to mine or receive Your Bitcoin. Copay is could be referred to as the preferred Bitcoin wallet and it functions on several different operating systems.
Delivery of Bitcoins is done by using unique methods such as addressees sent to your Bitcoin wallet. This step actually is the best so as to secure you from threats by enabling two-factors or being offline on a computer that isn’t connected to the internet.
For help in choosing a Bitcoin wallet, to be able to buy and sell your Bitcoins, then we recommend:
SpectroCoin: An European exchange with the ability to be able to buy with credit cards
Kraken: This being the largest European exchange.
Buying Bitcoin Guide: This guide helps in showing you a place to do your Bitcoin exchange in your country.
Local Bitcoin: This service makes room for you to search for people in your society willing to sell bitcoins to you directly. But we advice you should be careful!
Coin base: This is a good place to begin when  bitcoins are being bought. We advice you do not keep any bitcoins in their service.

Step 5 – Stay Up To Date With Bitcoin News

5 Top ICO Projects to Look Forward To

A start-up can start small, growing at its own rate. This it can do, or it can look outside for support at its early stages, giving it a quick cash flow but at the extent of giving away part of its ownership to investors. It can also generate funds from investors through the use of Initial Public Offering (IPOs). ICOs (Initial Coil Offering) are somewhat an equivalent of IPOs, it acts as fundraiser and it has, over the years become a standard method that start-ups and enthusiasts of cryptocurrencies use in raising funds. A company, looking forward to simply create a new coin, a service, or an application launches an ICO. Which is where you as an investor comes in, these ICOs that come at a little or no price at all are offered to you, you invest in them and if you are lucky, the coin will increase in value.
Actually, it borders more on intensive studies and most times, guts, more that luck. So knowing a particular ICO product that will yield much returns takes expertise knowledge. 2018 saw so many ICOs project come to being, 2019 promises even more projects. More reasons why you have to carefully select the ICO projects you have to lock your eyes on. I have quite a few but below are my top five ICOs projects to look forward to in 2019.


Angenium is a company that in their claims saves our environment from pollution. This they do with the use of technological approaches that recycles waste into products which are pretty valuable in the market. Angenium is a unique company because the technology at their disposal, on which the recycling of waste is carried out is not in the market, and it definitely has no substitute. The token of this ICO is ANG, starting at a price of 1 ANG = 1 USD. The ICO platform for this ICO is Etherum.
ICO Timeline: 14th January – 15th March, 2019

It is more or less designed to suit the Islamic society has the company have continued to stress how compatible their payment terminals are in compliant with Islamic rules in the middle east. Some of these rules are what makes it stand out in my opinion; the first of it is that interest is not allowed. The token for this ICO is MPAY, valued at 1 MPAY = 0.165 USD. The ICO is offered through the Etherum platform and it is currently operating in the UAE.
ICO Timeline: 15th January – 15th March, 2019

Best Ways to Earn Free Crypto coins

You probably must have asked yourself if there is a way that you can earn bitcoin or other cryptocurrency coins. Well, if you have, or you are yet to ask yourself the question; I am here to let you know that of course, you can earn free bitcoin or any other coin – without having to pay for it. But when I say you don’t have to pay for it, I am not trying to paint a picture of doing absolutely nothing; you have to at least do something of course. However, the main bone of contention borders on the fact that you don’t have to pay for it, but you earn it. Below are arguably the best ways to earn free bitcoin or any other coin. While these methods can be quite tasking, it is worthy of note that if you are planning to delve into any of these ways, it will take a whole lot of dedication. This is because the crypto coins earned are minute fractions; hence it will also take a whole lot of time for it to be profitable. Without wasting much time, shall we?

Bitcoin Games

There are games that award minute fractions of crypto coins as prizes. These games are mostly bombarded with advertisement, so while you play these games, you earn coins by seeing these advertisements and most times, clicking them. If you are the type of person that loves playing games, and you really don’t mind a few adverts, these games are sure ways to gather fractional coil values which can amount to a pretty big amount.

Crypto Faucets

A crypto coin faucets is a website feature that on a steady note drips crypto coins. It works through the distribution of cryptocurrencies for tasks undertaken. These tasks could include clicking of ads, completing micro tasks or as established earlier, playing games. The top crypto faucet websites are freebitcoin, faucethub, moon bitcoin and coinpot.


Blogging and writing on website at a conversion rate equivalent to cryptocurrency is another way of earning free coins. Some websites like Yálls, Steemit and Yours gives you the opportunity to earn coins simply by creating contents for their audiences. The more interaction you have within these platforms, the more you earn.


Crypto mining is a process that involves the transactions of various forms of cryptocurrencies and how they are verified, and added to the ledger of a blockchain. In any transaction of a crypto coin, a miner ensures that he confirms the authenticity of the streams of information, updating the blockchain with these information. There are quite a number of miners, but the first miner to crack a transaction code is usually rewarded with fractions of crypto coins. Mining is rather difficult for individuals, especially if they are doing it for profits, as it requires a whole lot of time spent online.

Crypto Airdrops

A cryptocurrency airdrop is a phenomenon related to the distribution of free coins by blockchain platforms. Airdrops basically is when holders of a specified cryptocurrency is given new cryptocurrency freely. Therefore, this method of earning free crpto coin borders on you having the targeted cryto coin in your crypto wallet. To claim airdrops, you will have to control the parent crypto on which the new currency was airdropped.

Getting Paid

This technique is technically not free. There are different ways in which it can be done. One of such is working for an enterprise that pays directly in bitcoin, this is mostly through freelance jobs. You could also simply be a service provider. Another way which hardly works is asking for bitcoin donations through various media.

Cryptocurrency Dividends

There are many cryptocurrencies that gives dividends but they can be tricky as not all of them are actually worth buying. However, buying reliable crypto coins that gives dividends can earn you free coins simply by holding them offline.
To conclude, the method listed above in which coins can be earned freely might look easy. But in reality, the difficulty level depends on how informed you as regards these methods. You will need information, dedication and good sense of judgement in order to use any of these methods to their high advantages. I leave the ball in your court.

Technical Analysis of Ethereum

The cryptocurrency market has posted a minor recovery but the negative trend is still strong. The cryptocurrency market has shed around 50% of market capitalization in the last several weeks and for now, there is no important reason to change this negative trend. In only 30 days the price of Ethereum has weakened from $155 below $85 and the current price stands around $105. Ethereum is an open source development platform that allows developers to build and deploy decentralized apps (dapps). Ethereum uses Ether (ETH) as its token and it is important to say that ETH is the third-largest cryptocurrency in terms of market cap behind Bitcoin and Ripple. When we look at the 1-year chart we can see that Ethereum is moving in “downtrend”. As long Ethereum is below $400 this cryptocurrency is in the “SELL” zone. Short term support and resistance levels are $100 and $200 – If the Ethereum jumps above $200 that would be a “BUY” signal and the open way to $250. If the Ethereum jumps above  $400 that could be a strong signal of the trend reversal and the open way to $500. On the other side, if the ETH falls below $100 that will be a signal “SELL” signal and the next target could be around $80.

Advice: In my opinion, there’s a very good reason to pay attention to it rather than Bitcoin: a lot of popular projects are launched using the Ethereum blockchain and this platform has big businesses’ attraction to its blockchain. Ethereum can be a very good investment option according to estimates and some predictions say that this cryptocurrency could be above $2000 in the next two years. As for the technical picture, the ETH remains in bearish phase but if the price advances above $400, short-term traders can enter the position with the stop loss at $390 and take profit at $450 or even $500.

How is Bitcoin Doing these Days?

Bitcoin is unarguably the oldest and the king of cryptocurrency, no wonder it holds more than 50% share in the cryptocurrency market capital. In the wake of 2018, investors had high hopes, especially when it hit an all-time high of $20,000 in December 2017.  Some of the top cryptocurrency investors and forecast experts, basing their predictions on this bullish band rise predicted that in 2018, bitcoin will hit $160,000. However, 2018 have not been so rosy for the creation of Satoshi Nakamoto, as bitcoin has lost its values, currently in its all year low.
Staring from the first month of 2018, the currency took a hit in what would eventually lead to series of dips throughout the year. One crypto asset had deflated to $16,000, then it went further low to $12,000. The deflation continued, such that at the half mark of the year, it had lost two-thirds of its value, trading at approximately $6,000. It continued toppling within this range down to the summer of 2018, causing it to be in what is termed transition band. But just when investors thought that was the lowest it could go, it took another dip. In November, it deflated to $3,600 and it inflated to $4,000.

One of the major problems that bitcoin encountered in 2018, that most forecasters didn’t put into consideration is the saturation of the cryptocurrency market. Although it held the largest share of the market throughout the year, there was quite a lot of cryptocurrency that have was introduce in the course of the year. Also, in the first quarter of 2018, the crypto space was saddled with allegations of frauds, theft and consistent hacking. This in turn reduced the credibility of the technology, making investors lose their money and also, causing a reduction in new buyers.. However, experts believe that most of the smaller altcoins that have saturated the space will be valueless in 2019, consequently reducing the saturation of the cryptocurrency space. And with security measures that have been undertaken, the blockchain and cryto wallet features are geared to increase credibility.
Another problem that contributed to the deflation was the unregulated initial coil offerings (ICOs) which have been capitalized on by fraudsters, stealing money worth millions of dollars from investors. However, in 2019, this might change. This is because the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) took measurable steps in regulating ICOs, enforcing strict registration processes and providing emergency steps that are to be taken to stop ICOs that are suspected to be misleading information to potential investors.
In the wake of 2018 (December 2017), Bitcoin futures were introduced. The bitcoin futures availed top investors the will to exert pressure on the value of bitcoin. This has given way for theories, making many people believe that bitcoin futures, in the words of Leo Melamed (CEO of Chicago Mercantile Exchange CME) is ‘taming’ the value of bitcoin.
With the introduction of bitcoin as a payment method, statistics have shown that it might not be a good idea on a long run. This is as a result of the stagnation in bitcoin ATMs that are installed in various parts of the world. Also, stablecoin seems to be a major competitor, capable of knocking out bitcoin on the platform of payments and transactions. However, its integration as a payment currency still have a probable future.
As at December 2018, a bitcoin is valued at $3,400. As predicted in 2017, the ownership of bitcoin is still relatively low but forecasters believe that all things being equal, if the cryptocurrency space is cleanse of smaller altcoins that have saturated it, bitcoin will rise again in value, leaving its transition band and skyrocketing into the band we previously know it to be in; bullish band. On the other hand, notable investors in bitcoin and analysts have continued to stress that the cypto coin in 2018 went through fundamental unraveling, reminding investors that it is just like any other investment with risks.

To summarize, 2019 promises to be a good year for bitcoin. As it seems like the year was used to solve rising issues that borders around it. With its value at $3,600, going into another year compared to the $20,000 of the previous year, you can as well say anything can happen. But if we are to trust experts, then it will be a good year.


I believe the first question to ask I’m other to understand this aspect of Bitcoin should be, What is cryptocurrency? According to definitions by high intellectuals, cryptocurrency is a digital or virtual currency that uses secret code for security.
But unlike virtual currency,  the government or central Bank of the country is responsible for any loss. Bitcoin is traded on a decentralized public digital ledger known as the blockchain. Actually, Bitcoin isn’t the only type of cryptocurrency. Several exist such as Ethereum etc.
So what skills and acquisitions that are needed for cryptocurrency jobs?
According to a recent data analysis, the cryptocurrency job market is on the high side. Posing high gains. Using analysis provided we found that listings for jobs pointing towards the sizes of  “cryptocurrency” or “bitcoin,” have risen 194% since, from 2018 to 2017.
\Are you curious if there’s a job in cryptocurrency for you? Here are 5 Jobs that are targeted towards Bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

Business Development Representative

The function of these are, as with any other founding and growing field, cryptocurrency is on he lead of founding new business opportunities, creating  Job opportunities, across industries (finance, health care, including real estate).
So there’s a need for you to check out these opportunities and seek to partner with them and also close deals.  Your tools would be a deep knowledge of the aim of the company’s cryptocurrency application. They should have some sales experience and stellar communication skills within their grasp.

Data Scientist

Harrison Brady, communications specialist at Frontier Communications, a telecommunications company headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, made a comment saying “Blockchain technology is relatively new and often misunderstood, which means that there is extremely high demand for experts in data science”.
If your aim is to make it big. I mean large and be in demand, think about becoming a data scientist in cryptocurrency. With an average salary of $120,931 per year. All you need to do is have the ground deep knowledge in cryptocurrency.
What does the job entail? Simple.  Making right correct predictions about cryptocurrency prices by interpreting patterns using  insights driven by analytical data. A degree in computer science or mathematics degree is needed.
Flexibility is a required skill since your job will probably be made redundant by AI in the coming years.


Everybody wants to be known and heard, so also investors in Bitcoin also want people to know about them. And who is more qualified to handle this department other that news publicists?
A lot of articles have been written on cryptocurrency to make it the most searched headline of the year in the business world. Many articles have been published on this topic and this in return has increased the search for writers. If you have a knack of writing and can sense the right opportunity in the market then there you go.

Financial Analyst

These are their duties such as hedge funds and insurance agencies, as well as with private investors looking to invest in cryptocurrency.
A typical working day involves investments, developing investment strategies, evaluating risks, and maintaining investment portfolios.
Things needed would include having a bachelor degree in financial analysis as well as a license. Also with skill in high level analysis, computer, and math skills will make you a potential candidate when applying to cryptocurrency-oriented jobs.

First you will need to be a regular Developer with a bachelor degree and a deep knowledge in computer science. Then a study on Ethereum blockchain or any other blockchain/cryptocurrency and studying it’s programming language.

Technical Analysis of Ripple

The cryptocurrency market has shed around 50% of market capitalization in the last several weeks and for now, there is no important reason to change this negative trend. The price of Ripple is also pressured by this situation and in only one month period the price of this cryptocurrency has weakened from $0.54 below $0.30. Ripple is an open source digital payment network which is also used by banks, the network is extremely fast and payments in XRP take around 4 seconds. It is important to say that all accounts and transactions have strong security and they are algorithmically verified. My opinion is that XRP could be a very good investment opportunity and putting a reasonable amount of money into XRP could potentially turn out to be an excellent investment. When we look at the 1-year chart we can see that Ripple is moving in “downtrend”. As long Ripple is below $1 this cryptocurrency is in the “SELL” zone. Short term support and resistance levels are $0.3 and $0.4 – If the Ripple jumps above $0.6 that would be a “BUY” signal and the open way to $0.8. If the Ripple jumps above  $1 that could be a strong signal of the trend reversal and the open way to $1.5. On the other side, if the XRP falls below $0.3 that will be a strong signal “SELL” signal and the next target could be around $0.25.

Advice: Ripple has a mission to become the go-to blockchain for big banks and financial institutions. Ripple has been increasingly adopted by banks and payment networks and this cryptocurrency can be a very good investment option according to estimates. As for the technical picture, the XRP remains in bearish phase but if the price advances above $1, short-term traders can enter the position with the stop loss at $0.9 and take profit at $1.3 or even $1.5.

Cryptocurrency Mining Software

Basically, mining software profoundly helps to deliver the mining hardware’s work to the rest of the Bitcoin network and to receive the completed work from other miners on the network. Moreover, the mining software helps to monitor this input and output of your miner while also displaying statistics like the speed of your miner, hashrate, fan speed and the temperature.

Best Cryptocurrency Mining Software

CGMiner software is reputed to be one of the best mining software out there. CGMiner offers a myriad of interesting features and active community support.

This follows with a dramatic rise of people who are interested in cryptocurrency trading, whether for the sake of active or passive income generation, or even just out of curiosity.
A problem that persists, however, is that the cryptocurrency space is perceived as an intricate and complex system, especially to non-technical people or those without financial and trading knowledge.
To resolve this difficulty, Blockport has built a highly intuitive, user-friendly crypto exchange that empowers both amateur and experienced crypto enthusiasts alike to easily buy and sell various cryptocurrencies.

Blockport announced that the company is working with Bugcrowd to maintain and continuously improve the security of its platform. Blockport, which has been running a private bug bounty program with Bugcrowd since earlier this year is now expanding the scope to include a vulnerability disclosure program. This move will provide Blockport with access to Bugcrowd’s global Crowd of security researchers and allow them to proactively be part of Blockport’s security posture.
In 2017, 2.6 billion records were stolen, lost or exposed worldwide, an 88% increase from 2016. To stem the growing tide of attacks, Vulnerability Disclosure Programs have quickly become a standard cybersecurity practice. Researchers can now submit vulnerabilities to Blockport which are then examined and validated by Bugcrowd and prioritized for Blockport to address in subsequent releases. Bugcrowd also provides remediation advice on submitted vulnerabilities which has further differentiated the company in the market. Coordinating disclosure efforts through a formalized channel minimizes the likelihood of missing important vulnerabilities, cyber attacks and public disclosure incidents.
“Our long term goal is to grow into the most user-friendly and widely-used decentralized exchange,” said Zowie Langdon, CTO, Blockport. “The security of our users’ funds is something we take very seriously. We see it as our primary duty to empower everyone in our community to assist in keeping Blockport and its users secure. Combining our private bug bounty with a vulnerability disclosure program helps us fulfill this duty with unsurpassed coverage.”
Blockport is a community-focused platform. The increased awareness that a vulnerability disclosure program provides Blockport helps improve security both for Blockport and the industry at large. The program provides security researchers within the community a channel of communication to become directly involved with Blockport’s security, while simultaneously rewarding them for their involvement.
“Blockport stands apart not only for its focus on user security, but also on the entire industry,” said Ashish Gupta, CEO, Bugcrowd. “Having run a private bug bounty program since the launch of its private beta, Blockport has demonstrated a real commitment to security, during a time in which we’ve seen an increasing number of cyber attacks. Awareness is paramount to overcoming these threats and Blockport is leading the way in building this awareness with their vulnerability disclosure program.
